LGT Vestra is one of the few global wealth management firms in private ownership. Founded in 2008, it is a UK-based partnership between LGT, wholly owned by the Princely Family of Liechtenstein, and the executive partners. The private ownership ensures financial stability which enables it to adopt a long-term approach to client relationships and investment decisions. As the firm is run by entrepreneurs, it is best placed to understand the issues and the investment perspective of fellow entrepreneurs and thus guide them through their financial requirements both before and after exit.
Their fresh approach to wealth management, by refusing to take third party commissions enabled them to build a strong reputation for openness and transparency. This has led to a growth in assets under management to £8.3billion at the end of April 2017. It employs 240 members of staff and has 40 partners.

Founded in the UK by Sherry Coutu, one of EY’s global alumni, Founders4Schools is a charity focused on closing the skills gap by connecting businesses with young people to prepare them for the world of work. The organisation has supported over 322,000 Student-Employer encounters by inviting business leaders to speak in schools, to inspire young people about the world of work and their future career. Earlier this year, Founders4Schools expanded its offer by launching Workfinder, available as an app. The app enables young people to find, filter and apply to companies offering work experience placements in their local area. Businesses who sign up are given support by Founders4schools to help them ensure placements are meaningful for both the young person and the business. This work is revolutionising work experience across the UK.
